Iv started expanding the short story i have here https://www.writingforums.org/showthread.php?t=52592 into a full blown novel. I'm really enjoying it as it feels like it writes itself. The issue im having is that i have an ending but after working on my plan for the story im approx 200,000 words in and am about halfway through and as it isn't a rewrite of the bible I'm spying an issue. iv considered splitting it into a trilogy (or quad-rilogy) but I don't like it. I've also tried stripped it down to things i have to have in the story in the story and it just doesn't feel right, feels rushed and missing that je ne sais quoi. IS there a solution to my problem? I'm hoping to release a novel, not a library. also does anyone else ever have this problem? or am i just weird/over enthusiastic?
